When I Consider How My Light is Spent

When I Consider How My Light is Spent published on 6 Comments on When I Consider How My Light is Spent

The comic–Jim gracioiusly agreed to let me release my inner pedant. So, prepare your skullcave for some book learnin’.

Fact:  It’s well documented that James Joyce was a Pokemon fiend.

Fact:  Hemingway hunted everything including the Covenant.

Fact:  Zelda cooked with a Tommy Gun and F. Scott could Tokyo-Drift.

Fact:  I spend too many hours on the couch.

We need recreation, but tabulation of the hours, days, weeks poured into those hobbies invariably triggers some deeply seated Catholic guilt response in me.

Pleasure=Selfish

Selfish=Bad

Or more elloquently,

When I consider how my light is spent,
Ere half my days, in this dark world and wide,
And that one talent which is death to hide
Lodged with me useless…

John Milton

Don’t let your talent lodge worthlessly within you friends.

Cheers,

Jack
